So i know its been discontinued but yet people are still getting this amp. How? I've heard nothing but good reviews on this and i really want to maybe save up for one, but if it's discontinued how do i get my hands on it? I'm not very big on buying from private sellers so....

Buy used, or get a 6505. 6505 is the exact same circuit as the 5150, they had to change the name because they no longer had a contract with Eddie Van Halen.

I live in Europe too. And i live in a land where we pay 21% VAT, and if im not mistaking that is more than scotland (17% or 19%?).
I bought my 6505 new for €1070. Thats alot more than american prices, but its still not that much.

EDIT: seems like you guys pay 17,5% VAT, so you should be able to get it just below €1000

Used? I'd love a 5150 but I don't know where to look


I did a google search and guys on forums in scotland were selling them, mine was through ebay. I was lucky tho the guy lived 10 mins away.

Only ones I can find on ebay is a small 5150 combo for £500 and a 6505 for £800. I've kinda sold me JS30RR for £150 and I'm selling my line 6 so I'll have about £350 so I'll have to do a bit of saving
